Renewed violence in Gaza and the freedom to demonstrate in the occupied territories – Statement by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs Deputy Spokesman

Paris, December 12, 2011

The most recent Israeli bombing of Gaza has had tragic consequences.

France, who has always condemned the firing of rockets and missiles into southern Israel, once again calls for restraint in order to spare human lives, preserve the safety of civilians, and maintain the truce in Gaza.

In the West Bank, France strongly deplores the death of a Palestinian demonstrator from the village of Nabi Salih and reaffirms her commitment to the universal right to demonstrate peacefully./.
